    I would love a low dirty flyby or three by an E3. That would make me happy. The last time I saw a 707 frame was almost a year ago in SRQ when I was at the airport while a pair of 135's took tuns seeing who could bounce it harder on runway 14.

    Apparently the F-22 will be based out of Gabreski airport.

    Having never been there before, is it a photographer/spotter friendly airport?

    Thanks

    Awesome news! Maybe I'll spend my Saturday out there and Sunday at the show. Can you tell me where you heard this from?

    The shows organizer, Karl Koppen, posts updates once in a while on Airshowbuzz.com. This info was in a post a few days back. Also in that post was the confirmation that the Blues will stage from FRG.

    Hey Nick...want to arrange an NYCA base visit? :D

    GrummanFan is correct, that is who announced it. He has been a great source of information in the past.

    The Blues were here earlier this year to scope it out! I had posted those pictures already,
    but for the guys that have not been around :borat: Gocha covered!

    I'll call them tomorrow, I guess the plan would be to spend Saturday on base and Sunday at the show? Or maybe Sat Am at Gabreski and Pm at FRG catching traffic there as well? LMK.
